  • Although President Trump’s proposal to end DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) does not immediately affect Queens College students who are “dreamers,” it does subject them to a great deal of uncertainty about their futures. We invite all students affected by this decision to come in and talk about it if they would like to. For more information, visit the Queens College Immigrant Services website.

WE WELCOME YOU AT QUEENS COLLEGE AND AT COUNSELING SERVICES.
WE VALUE YOU AS PART OF THE QUEENS COLLEGE COMMUNITY.
